Back on the BIG Screen in Newport Beach

Edwards Big Newport 6 is participating in Regal's Flashback Features program with a terrific line-up of Big Screen hits at midnights on Saturdays.

The Big Newport is a wonderful (and rare) success story. Most giant single-screen theatres have been torn down or twinned, but the main auditorium at the Big Newport was preserved and 5 new auditoriums were built alongside it, much like Denver's Continental Theatre.

The Big Newport's website notes:

The main screen is the largest movie screen on the West Coast, attracting both film fans and tourists. It is a 40-by-80-foot screen that attracts the newest releases. With a seating capacity of 1,108, the theater is big and roomy and boasts a Dolby Surround Sound system. The seats in the theater are designed with comfort in mind. The seats are large, high-back,velour-cushioned reclining chairs with cup holders and plenty of leg room.
It's great to see theatre management take such pride in their operation. The Big Newport is a fantastic place to see current films OR past favorites!
